I had such a great time at Homecoming with two of my best friends! Thank you Alicia and Sam for being the best ever and thank you to all of our moms for the pictures :) I love you guys.
I missed writing so much. Ahhhh.
Okay, so I just got home from the Lincoln City, Oregon and I have learned a couple things.
1. I like the ocean more than most people
2. Sand gets everywhere. Like crevices that I didn't know existed
3. Glass blowing is mainly not for vases
4. Riding on dune buggies are OFF THE CHAINNNN
Now don't get me wrong, I do like people but the ocean is a place where you can just sit and think or turnup all at the same time. This was mainly a koombaia trip, meaning lying on the beach, lemon water and watching the sunset. I mean I'm so down for that. If you are one of those people that lives in the office and worries about everything and everyone, the ocean is a great place for you. Just a suggestion. The water is just a tad cold but manageable and at night, bonfires are opportune. Okay, back to me. My Gramme lived about two blocks from the beach so we could just walk down whenever, which was firee. We had tons of fun at the beach and oo oo if you want to see the beach I may have done a little bit of vlogging so go check that out on my YouTube *winks surreptitiously.*
Yes, I just wrote about how awesome the ocean is, but there are some flaws. Such as, the sand. Oh. My. Gosh. The sand is horrid. There is wind that blows sand around and ends up EVERYWHERE. There is no way to prevent it. It's like trying to get that small egg shell out of your bowl and it keeps sliding off your fork (shut up chefs. ) I wanted to dig my own grave, which is actually what I did without the alleged death of course. I managed to dig a hole and sit in it with sunglasses that I found on the beach and my sweatshirt wrapped around my head like a turban. Before my shower as I was taking off all of my clothes I swear a literal 5 pound bag of sand fell onto the floor. You can not even understand the frustration.
Im not going to discuss glass blowing any further than I have already. Hehe.
Picture a dune buggy driving 60 mph off this huge sand dune that is roughly 400 feet or maybe bigger. Not quite sure. Well, it doesnt matter it was legit either way. Look up sandrails. Shout to Doug (the driver) you're the real MVP.
OK. I have been thinking a lot about this subject recently. This is 2015. People lie, cheat, steal and many other things that didn't use to happen. What has changed a lot over the past years is people's self esteem. This world has altered the look of normal people and set expectations so high that there is no way to reach them. Companies are throwing models out there in 'to die for clothing' and 'to die for bodies.' Makeup companies are stating "Just be the natural you" but while you are doing that cake on a layer of makeup or two. Now, makeup is fun. From time to time I wear makeup as well, but makeup has changed from a fun accessory, to girls thinking that they are ugly without it. People should be able to walk around freely wearing whatever they want and acting however they want but that is simply not the reality.
Now dealing with the psychological part. The common thought is to change yourself for someone else to like you. Now, I'm not lying I have done this before but I can promise you that nothing spectacular can come out of something that starts with a lie. It is better to surround yourself with people that love you for who you truly are. It doesn't matter if you're black, white, green or purple people should truly love you not from your appearance, race, sexual orientation or belief systems.
Just be you :)
Recently I have watched the movie called "The DUFF." Now mostly everybody knows what that means but just to clear it up it means "Designated. Ugly. Fat. Friend." I have never been so called fat or actually ugly but you don't have to be to be a DUFF. Basically a DUFF is a left out friend or a friend that simply is not treated the same as the others. I have been in a situation such as this. In fifth grade I met this girl. I was at a new school and i knew no one. She had a best friend before me and soon enough we were a threesome. Three of the most popular girls in school. I know this sounds ideal but trust me. Friend groups of three are the worst situation to be in. There is always that time that one girl always gets left out. I so happened to be that girl. There is always a leader in the pack. When you're alone with the leader she treats you special and you feel important and at the time, all of the pain of being left out seems to be worth it. Trust me, a girl that went through this for three years, it is not. It took me three years to realize that. In eighth grade a situation happened with a boy I liked and I ended things with her and we drifted apart. I can say that I have found a best friend that treats me like an equal to her and loves me like a sister and I can live my life with so much more happiness. So, if you are a girl that gets left out, used or judged by your friends, they are the wrong friends for you and you deserve so much better. Stick up for yourself and don't let others turn you into a DUFF.
Hey guys! Hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoy writing (((hug)))
